WHY THE CHENGDU AMERICAN CENTER FOR STUDY ABROAD?

G-MEO has created an English language, US-style learning environment, The Chengdu American Center for Study Abroad.

The Chengdu Center works with American University, Concordia University, Fairleigh Dickinson UniversityMerrimack College and Norwich University as Principal Partners, which offer a range of their courses every semester at the Center, making credits easy to transfer. The prestigious Sichuan University, one of the leading universities in China and the earliest higher education institute in Sichuan, dating back to the Qing Dynasty, is the host institution. The Center is located on the University's beautiful, downtown Huaxi campus, in one of its stately old buildings. You will study with a mix of other Americans and students from Sichuan University.
